I was in an auto accident on 2/7/2012 which resulted in a 4/5 level seperation. I had an operation to repair it, including installation of a plate on 3/9/2012. About 4 weeks after surgery I started very easy physical therapy. The doctor kept told me to really work it because the shoulder could have signifcant range of motion issues if I didn't. Though, I wasn't every able to get greater than about 50% range of motion due the the plate restricting it. The plate was then removed on 8/3/2012. I quickly got about 90% of my range of motion back and started some light weight lifting. I got back to lifting about 50 lbs bench press.[br][br]Now at the tail-end of September, I detected a bump reappearing. I went back to the doctor and after x-rays, he says it now sas a level 1 seperation. He said to lay off the weight lifting and come back in a month. The doctor says that walking is fine but I've noticed that I've experienced significant pain when I go on lenghty walks. So I'm go to listen to my body and not the doctor. It it hurts then then my body is telling me not to do it.[br][br]I'm really frustrated at this point. I'm back to sleeping in a recliner and am thinking might be good to start wearing the sling again.
